A Beautiful Update to a Great Application

Reviewed On
Validated Review
What do you like best?

I like a lot about this version of PDF Element 6. But, the most pleasing is the User Interface. In version 5, the tools were presented in a non-intuitive way, making it a bit confusing to edit documents and create forms. In version 6 the interface has been overhauled to my delight. At first glance, the tools are in the same place, but the difference is that they standout better for easy location. As a Mac user, I also appreciate the tabs used the separate the tool functions. It's as familiar as using Pages or Keynote. Kudos to the developers!

What do you dislike?

To be honest, during my evaluation, I did not find a single thing to dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For the price and capabilities provided, I highly recommend PDFelement. It's a very capable PDF editor for an amazing price. I've been using it since version 5, and version 6 is even better!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When filling out expense reports, they are provided in PDF format, but are not fillable. With PDFelement, that's no problem. The editing capability allows me to add my relevant text in a font of my choice, and position it perfectly. It's a real time saver!

No more hand writing and it can recognize any form i believe.

PDF Element 6 Mac Software Review

Updated On
Validated Review
Verified Current User
What do you like best?

1. All the drop-down tools that are familiar with using Mac software is almost gone. The idea is to go to toolbars with descriptive text underneath each command.

2. Change text change is simpler in 6 than in 5. 6 allows the user the ability to change multiple items on one panel and not clicking another icon for the information.

3. The ability to convert the PDF file to Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel is great! I can now if need to make more edits in the Office products. This is not in PDFelement 5.

What do you dislike?

PDFelement still has a problem with allowing the user to use check marks or filled in the square on a PDF form. If PDFelement builds this feature it will make my use more productive

Recommendations to others considering the product

I am reviewing the new version 6 on a Mac with the latest operating system (High Sierra) and am a mouse-centric and not keyboard commands person.

PDFelement 6 has done some changes that I like:

1. All the drop-down tools that are familiar with using Mac software is almost gone. The idea is to go to toolbars with descriptive text underneath each command.

2. Change text change is simpler in 6 than in 5. 6 allows the user the ability to change multiple items on one panel and not clicking another icon for the information.

3. The ability to convert the PDF file to Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel is great! I can now if need to make more edits in the Office products. This is not in PDFelement 5.

In summary, I would buy this software and the update for me means an update to PDFelement 6.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Filling in PDF documents on the computer instead of handwriting all the information. The benefits have been better documentation and readable text on a PDF form.

Easy to use, but powerful PDF editor.

What do you like best?

PDFelement 6 Pro is a very intuitive and powerful PDF editor that does everything I have needed it to do in order to edit and modify my PDF documents in a very efficient and effective manner. It has surpassed my expectations in terms of easy of use and power when editing PDF documents. I have used other PDF editor programs as well as PDFelement 6 Pro and, while all of them have powerful editing capabilities, PDFelement 6 Pro is easier and more intuitive to use without sacrificing valuable features. This is a great program which should satisfy the needs of virtually all users and is well worth the moderate cost.

What do you dislike?

Up to this point I have found nothing that I dislike about PDFelement 6 Pro. It has met and exceeded my expectations. There was a bit of a learning curve regarding the command buttons in the program when I first began using the program, but they were easily learned in a short period of time and any errors made in editing any PDF are very easily corrected with PDFelement 6 Pro if one is unhappy with the result.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give the trial version a try and you will be very happy about the ease and depth of PDFelement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using PDFelement 6 Pro to edit all types of PDF documents. The ease of adding, deleting, modifying text, and adding images to documents has greatly reduced the time and effort involved in these processes, resulting in very efficient, effective, and professional end result.

What do you like best?

PDF Element 6 is easy to use, its intuitive and can quickly be learnt. It's faster than the previous version.

Compared to the previous version, the user interface has improved a lot - thanks.

The software is very comprehensive and powerful. Features that I like most:

- (very) fast document conversion to Word, Excel, PPT and other file types

- Fast OCR detection, also supports image-based PDFs.

- personal comments with notes or text box.

- Creating forms is now a simple process.

- very cheap price compared to Adobe Acrobat.

In summary: PDFelement 6.x is a very good software with extensive functions for professional work.

PDFelement has an unbeatable price-performance ratio. The software is for me a high quality alternative to expensive Adobe products.

Thanks for this great work!

What do you dislike?

I couldn't find anything I did not like about the program. Version 5 errors have been fixed in version 6.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is excellent, extensive and fast. My recommendation for PDF applications.

I solve following tasks with the product:

- Fast conversion of pdf's to other formats (word, excel, ...)

What do you like best?

I have been using the PDFelement 5 for several years. Version 6 Pro has a better interface. It is also more intutitive and compared to competitors like Adobe it is simler to navigate.

I like adding text with ease, the almost flawless oening of scanned documents, making text and picture amendments. Also converting the word and pdf files are easier. It keeps the tables and charts in proper place and makes it easier to edit tham according to text I edit.

What do you dislike?

In filling some forms it still has some difficulty in marking the boxes which could be improved. When opening documents from file is enlarges them and it is with extra effort to make them smaller to edit or see. This can be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Switch and use. It is a very useful and practical pdf tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I often write articles which need to be shared in PDF version. Wityh 6 Pro I can productively do this. Furthermore I use the OCR in foreign languages quite often.
